Known for its brass band tradition, ear-shaped orechiette pasta and burrata cheese, Puglia is made up of rolling hills that border the Ionian and Adriatic seas. Visit the Castel del Monte in Alberobello, built by Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II when the region became a crossroads between the Roman Catholic Byzantine and Arab worlds. See Lecce, known as the Capital of Baroque style in Italy. Go to Matera, which boasts a cultural tradition and civilization that stretches back to the Neolithic age. Its caves are a UNESCO World Heritage site and it was the setting for the movie “Passion of the Christ.”

Thanks to its breathtaking natural beauty, Sorrento has become an elite resort destination. Sign up for an optional tour of the Amalfi Coast and Sorrento, where you’ll visit the old town of Amalfi and picturesque Sorrento, famous for its breathtaking bay. Then head to Flegrean Fields, where most of the mythological sites of ancient Rome are located: the Roman city of Pozzuoli, where Sofia Loren was born, the biggest Roman port of Baia, and the Greek city of Cuma where people prayed to the Egyptian god of Iside.

In this capital city of Italy, you’ll be mesmerized by Etruscan tombs, imperial temples, early Christian churches, medieval bell towers, baroque basilicas and Renaissance palaces. Take an optional tour of Imperial Rome, featuring the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. Don’t forget to take advantage of some free time to experience the authentic Italian culture. Sample the local cuisine at a trattoria in Trastevere or an outdoor café on Via Veneto. Shop for chic fashions on Via Condotti or visit Via Margutta for art, antiques and souvenirs.
